This week has been another week. We didn't have any baptisms this week but we have plans for 4 this coming week so that is awesome. And I'm really out of things to say cause no one writes me! Oh, for Steph, I would like to say thank you for your letter. I hope school ends well for you, I love you. One of my neighbors was playing The Beatles or Los Beatles. It made me happy to hear some good music. We had
a huge rain storm again yesterday in the afternoon and someone losttheir home. It was sad and kinda scary. My companion and I were visiting people at the time, but we are cared for by the Lord. Last Monday my companion and I and two other Hermanas that were with us went to a museum with mummies that were buried alive.  The place was very small but interesting. The rest of the day we played volleyball and Hna Penovich and I were eaten alive by mosquitos.  I'll send pics of it. I love you and miss you all. God is real and Jesus lived, died, and lives for us. I hope to heard from you soon. Oh, Dad and Mom thanks also for the letters you send, and I'm still waiting for those pictures.

Wow sounds like a mad house there! Kinda glad I'm in Peru. For us it was a good week. We had a baptism this week and she took 6 months to finally do it! Wow it is nice to have one person finally take the plunge. Yesterday was the other part of the elections so we had to stay in our rooms again for almost the whole day. At 6 last night we were able to work. It was ok - I finished the whole missionary reference library yesterday. Good colletion of books. We`ve gotten a lot of rain these days. The weather of Huanuco is crazy! In one day it can rain a whole bunch, then be super hot and then in the night super cold! I kinda miss the deserts weather of nothing. Oh yeah I hope you send the general conference issue of the Ensign cause I just found out we don't get one. Yes I get to call home, actually I get to call home on the 18th first to tell you when I'm calling for Christmas. I only get to talk for like 5 mins and my whole zone will be there so just be home so I can relay the info. I'm a little scared if I have to call Grandma's, only because then I have to talk to Rocio and my Spanish isn't that good I dont think. Things here are Christmas practically. I hope it passes soon, Christmas that is. I printed off some of the photos from Halloween that you sent me so now everybody knows what my family looks like except my mom. One sister asked if my mom exsisted. So there needs to be a picture of mom. And everyone has seen Stephanie as a pumpkin. Well I love you all lots; I'm going to try to send photos right now.

I hope your tests go well mom. You and Steph - what class did you have together? Ask Steph how Spanish class was for her? Oh, tell Steph I got her letter. I hope her wisdom teeth went out well. Dad said something about her surgery coming up. Oh and ask her if the All American Rejects have a song named I`ll be Loving You because some kids were playing this song in the street and the band sounded familar and the song too. So maybe I heard it before the mission too; I can't remember any more. I miss music lol. Tell her I love her and miss her. Tell Bobby that I miss him too, although maybe he doesn't miss me more than my Playstation which maybe he's found by now.

I like this photo just because, if you can see, there are farms on the side of the mountain.
Here are pictures of me and my companion dead on a Sunday night before P-Day. I have my first comp from the MTC here in Huanuco with me for Christmas. oh and the last photo mostly becasue in there is a red and white tower and that tower thing is on top of a building used for a church and there is a little red basket on this tower where a pastor of this church stands and preaches and calls repentance to all of Huanuco on Sundays! Can we say Zoramites?.  Tell Steph that I love her like a million times!!  Oh, and tell Trisha thanks for her letter too!!
